You can choose which one to use by modifying the bat file of your miner.
You need to add --device=0 at the end of the Last line.
The number determine which gpu to use
Your graphic card seems to be 0.
I'm not a programmer but I can understand somethings about that. However, I do not know how to use 'mklink / j' or use GUI utilities.
I started to follow your second advise (for me easier to understand). I opened this file:
'Resources / app / js / mainjs / config.js' from Sia program, and in this file I can see some vars, one of these is:
Datadir: Path.join (app.getPath ('userData'), './sia'),
Its value is in "C: \ Users \ UserName \ AppData \ Roaming \ Sia-UI \ config.json"
If I change this value, when I start SIA appears an error.
The error apears with folder moved or not moved.
This error signs to this file: config.json (from 'resources / app / js / mainjs / config.js' Sia extrated program and other parameters).
I think the file with 'Path.join' value is the target, but I do not know which file could content it yet.
Thanks for your answer.
@JoeStrange The advice I have for people buying VC is #1 use a well established exchange to buy your coin #2 dont leave your coin on the exchange, transfer it to you own wallet and secure your wallet while also keeping copies in triplicate. #3 start with a small xfer before you do a larger one to make sure you have your addresses right and there are no issues. The people here complaining are here because they did all the right things but still got screwed. If this was an issue that Polo froze all wallets and announced a hack and people were complaining about having $50k USD in long holdings on the exchange, I would have not much sympathy.
@gotohell it doesnt even show up on the blockchain when checking the official sia explorer despite Polo having a txid, there is no amount of looking or working on your local wallet that is going to fix that.
@siarunner Couldnt agree more, they are making more than a million a day in income and they cant afford $1000 a day to pay a few people to respond to tickets with some basic acknowledgement and update. They deserve to have the crap sued out of them and I may be just one of the many to do it as they have lost 300,000SC of mine and havent bothered to respond once in 7 days to my ticket and when asking details about ticket queue in the troll box I just get ban hammered. At this point, Polo deserves to fail or at minimum fall to second or 5th place among exchanges, its time another exchange had their day, polo has failed. I do wish a SIA representative would step up and say something because if this is a SIA issue and I sue Polo, they will just turn around and sue SIA which wont help the other SIA in my wallet but at this point, if the problem is polo, they are doing more and more damage to sia value the longer this goes on.
Thanks. I have moved the thread to a 'hosting' forum, stickied it, and also changed it from a profit maximization guide to a hosting handbook. I've added a small explanation for collateral budget and max collateral.
I'm having this issue also on windows 10. It seemed fine until the update a few days ago. Now when I open sia, it syncs, seems connectable and I think everything is fine. A few minutes later, it's unreachable. Ports are open.
A few linux users seem to be having this Issue about the same time i noticed it: https://github.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/issues/1832
